i just did update from FSO 3.6.7 / Launcher 5.3 to FSO 3.6.9 RC3 /Launcher 5.3.
With 3.6.7 I had all available sounds, speech and music during gameplay. I changed to FSO 3.6.9 RC3 due to the bug that caused mission SM2-06A.FS2 to crash (see http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,40698.0.html
). With FSO 3.6.9 RC3 I do not have any sounds nor music on the main Freespace screen. During mission briefing and weapon/ship selection even speech is missing. During flight the only sound I have got are the soundeffects from canon fires of larger ships (freighters, warships). Nothing else. No speech, no ship sounds, no explosions...
I use "direct sound" as sound option.
This is my launcher.ini

Besides, FSO 3.6.9RC5 or Launcher 5.4 causes an Acces Violation on my system immedialty after starting.
